A Hollywood home where actor Bette Midler lived in the 1980s and director George Lucas also lived almost 30 years later is now on the market for $4.3 million, after first listing for $4.48 million at the end of 2018. Craig White of Douglas Elliman is the listing agent.
According to Top Ten Real Estate, Midler lived in the home from 1983 to 1987 when she started her production company, All Girl Productions, to bring a focus to her musical talents as well as her acting chops. Her long singing and acting career includes the popular song “Wind Beneath My Wings” and leading roles in “The First Wives Club” and “The Rose.” Midler has been nominated twice for an Academy Award and won three Golden Globe awards, three Grammy awards and three Emmy awards. Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, only owned the house from 2008 to 2010. He owns several properties in California, including Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, which houses several divisions of his company, Lucasfilm.
At approximately 3,200 square feet, the house is behind a gated driveway in the Hollywood Hills with mature trees lining the property for privacy. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home has been recently renovated by the current owners, which included a kitchen overhaul, adding French oak flooring and dramatic paint colors in a few areas. The layout of the first floor includes a kitchen off the dining room with a large entrance to the adjacent dining room so the rooms are separate but have a sense of flow between them.
“You can be in the kitchen or dining space with others in the great room and not feel like you’re on top of each other or talking over each other,” White said.
The renovated kitchen has Carrara marble, custom Italian cabinetry and Wolf appliances. Near the kitchen is a living room with a vaulted ceiling and skylight.
A large bedroom upstairs has a private balcony overlooking the backyard.
